Kevin Walters's Achievements
MSU is seeking a Crew Leader and 3-4 Crew Members for the 6th season of Michigan's Mobile Boat Wash program this summer. The selected candidates will gain lots of experience with public outreach and education as we work to stop the spread of aquatic invasive species statewide. They'll also make connections with natural resources professionals from local, state, and federal agencies. The Crew Leader position would be ideal for a graduating senior, or a graduate student in need of summer funding. The Crew Leader could potentially start right away on a part-time basis, transitioning to full-time during the summer. The Crew Member positions are summer only. Application deadline is February 15.
